Kansas Gas Service is partnering with Kansas agencies to assist customers with completing Low Income Energy Assistance Program (LIEAP) applications. LIEAP, which is administered through the Kansas Department of Children and Families, helps low-income households pay a portion of their home energy costs through an annual benefit.
We want to do what we can to help customers get connected to available financial resources as winter months can be a difficult time for some paying their utility bills,” said Abbey Frye, Kansas Gas Service director of customer service. “Now that LIEAP is accepting applications, we urge customers to stay safe and warm by applying.”
Kansas Gas Service representatives will be available at several community events to help fill out and submit required forms and answer customers’ questions about their natural gas accounts. The income eligibility limit for the 2022 LIEAP program is 150% of the federal poverty income guidelines. Individuals with a gross monthly income of up to $1,610 are eligible to apply. The application period for LIEAP funds ends March 31.
